you will need to rebuild the motor with forged rods and pistons. the pistons will need to be dish top pistons for lower compression. you will need a fuel and engine management system. there are two options with that, stand-alone and piggy back. if you aren't running larger injectors, you could run a unichip piggy back. this unit is pretty basic and plug-and-play as they get as long as the injectors don't get changed. if you swap the injectors, you may want to go with stand-alone.
